Item description for Woman and the Dragon, The: Apparitions of Mary by David Lindsey...
Time and again, God has sent Mary to earth to warn us about punishments to come. Here, the author details the history and prophecies surrounding Mary's major appearances, including:
o Our Lady of Guadalupe: Mexico 1531 o Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal: Paris, France 1830 o Our Lady of Lourdes: France 1858 o Our Lady of the Rosary: Fi tima, Portugal 1917 o The Queen of Peace: Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina 1981-present
Many of Mary's messages foretold what are now elements of our past: the world wars, the rise of communism, the suffering of Pope John Paul II. They also foresee what is still to come: the chastisement, the Antichrist, and the Second Coming. To prepare for these events, Mary suggests praying, heeding her warnings, and following her advice-"Let your only instruments always be love. By love turn everything into good which Satan desires to destroy and possess."

A Baha'i Perspective Feb 24, 2007
This neglects to connect the image of Hagar and Ishmael in the wilderness, (in Genesis) with the concept that the Woman in Revelation 12 may represent the religion of Muhammad that sprang from the Ishmaelites. In one the earth brings forth water, in the other, it takes it in. Moreover, the twelve stars of her crown have been interpreted as the 12 Imams of the Shí'ih, the sun with which she is clothed, the kingdom of Persia, where her Child, the Promised Qa'im of the House of Muhammad arose in 1844, which is 1260 AH. The wilderness is Arabia, where the Point of Adoration was moved from Jerusalem (and has been moved again).
The moon is the Ottoman Sultanate. The Climax of the conflict is when the Dragon, representing the names of the Umayyad Caliphs, who were always trying to kill the descendants of the Prophet, is defeated by "Archangel Michael" who is believed by Baha'is to be Bahá'u'lláh, the Prophetic Founder. The seven heads are the dominions they ruled.
So the time, place and lineage of the Promised One is foretold, but far be it for most Christians to accept His Holiness Muhammad, let alone the Messiah of Islam.
Great, but..... Sep 5, 2002
Combines history with the apparitions of Mary giving incite to the messages given and the reasons for her appearance. As a Catholic I feel better informed about Mary. A book hard to put down once opened.
However a lot must taken with a grain of salt. Some of the events/person he focuses on are not approved by the church if not banned. Plus it would turn off any non-Catholic with his "the Catholic church is the only True church". Many views are that of a very conservative Catholic. Much is written from the defence of the church- not mentioning the many things the church has inflicted on the world and why people fell away. However the chuch has been bashed a lot over the years and its a nice change to see a defence.
I'm surprised he calls himself a biologist and chemist because he calls many recent inventions such as the internet and the computer as the root cause of the many evils of todays world. Plus he has no love for Darwin, which any biologist has to give credit for many scientific advances today, plus the Pope even recognizes the great quantities of scientific proof (for creation of everything but the soul). He forgets that many of todays tools are double edged tools and the use is determined by the person using it.
You read his version of the anti-Christ and you wonder if we the U.S. are it.
The Woman and the Dragon: Apparitions of Mary. Jun 27, 2002
David Michael Lindsey has my gratitude for such an indepth study of the Blessed Virgin's historical apparitions. I have been a serious student of her life, work, and apparitions. Yet, Michael has allowed me to learn much more concerning real history in the making of the world for which I now have a much clearer perception of Her Work in the interest of humanity.
To awaken to one's own blindness, is a sad thing.
Michael's excellent literary skills makes for clarity in understanding what has not been understood. Many important details have come to light without which it is difficult to understand Her. It is a book you cannot put down at day's end.
Her Warnings, Our Struggles, and Inspiration Feb 6, 2001
Upon beginning this book I had anticipated information regards to the apparitions alone. Yet, the author has done extensive research in completing this wonderful literature which includes much, much more. I cried as I read the struggles of all the human races and Christianity; and, again because of Mary's enormous love to warn us of such atrocities. I have read many other Marian books and, this is among the elite of those titles. I would recomend The Woman and the Dragon to those who are seeking information about our Blessed Mother, and how her love for us exists for all time.
